We are back, with another season of “Technically Human.”
For our first episode of the season, we’re bringing you a conversation with Dr. Steven Kelts. We talk about corporate ethics, we debate the role of values in tech culture, and Steven plays “optimistic cop” to my “cynical cop,” to argue that he’s hopeful for, and excited about, the future of ethics in tech culture.
Steven Kelts is a political theorist and long-time ethics educator, and a Lecturer at Princeton University, in the Politics Department and at the University Center for Human Values.
His current research is on the history and uses of market ideas, including theories of the firm and corporate organization. In addition to ongoing writing projects, Dr. Kelts consults in the private sector with companies looking to align their market value with their ethical values, working to develop frameworks to help employees navigate ethical pitfalls in their organizational culture.
This episode was produced by Deb Donig and Sakina Nuruddin.
